Mark Smed Posted over 1 year ago Should blasphemy be outlawed by the UN? An individual's rights to express himself should never be limited. Society cannot police individual thought, only action. If you don't like someone because of their ideas, you should be able to express that, no matter how offensive other people find it. The liability comes when groups put forward ideas to represent a position. There are a lot of people who have strong beliefs that we as individuals agree with. A single racist or fear monger is a single voice among many. A group of racists or fear mongers can promote their ideas to manipulate public opinion over the lone voice of opposition. Care must be taken when we organize into units - and the responsibility and liability of that is fully accountable to the individual members. What should really be discusssed is how much is your responsibility when you support an idea that harms another group or individual.
